This Week's Winner
Georgia: Two executives of the Christian Integrity Bank have been charged with selling fraudulent loans in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes. One local developer who received an $80M loan kept $20M in a private checking account and used the money to buy a private island in the Bahamas. Integrity Bank, which was founded on "Biblical principles," held daily employee prayer meetings and gave customers free Bibles. They were shut down by federal regulators in 2008. Integrity!
